My favorite part of Friday night’s Opening Ceremony – other than the Queen’s chubby corgi dogs – was the lighting of the cauldron. Of course this is always one of the most dramatic parts of the event, but I love the way London 2012′s cauldron designed by Thomas Heatherwick feels more like an art installation than anything else. Brilliant. Check out more photos here.
